I had a custom order from a gentleman in Ireland for an Irish Garda Crest badge.
I was able to track down a vector version of it online, but it was such a mess of lines I had to redraw most of it to work. I cut it out of 1/2" and 1/4" Sintra (PVC board)
It just needs the lettering and symbol done, then it's ready to ship off.
I wish I made two now so I would have a nice sample piece.
I routed it on a Gerber Dimension 200 router with Artpath software. It's a 2D program, but it does allow you to do prismatic stuff which I used here.
Rattle can gold paint and hand painted acrylic blue for interior display.

Congrats Marek!
I really like this. It's very crisp and clean. Sometimes a perfectly machined piece with razor sharp detail is as exciting as a more sculptural look.
High five to YOU! [smile]

Who would have thought that lowly Sintra could look so good? Nice job! Thanks for sharing!
